Field study: solving construction vehicle wireless connectivity challenges
Improving the construction process efficiency requires constant data collection from the mobile machinery of the construction site. The efficient use of 3D machine control requires reception of accurate positioning and for example interaction with BIM models. When equipment autonomy is increasing, requirements for machine swarming related connectivity, video feed and even remote control signal is increasing. This presentation describes the findings of a field study; how all this connectivity was implemented in a effective way to a set of construction vehicles?
